Ranveer Singh to appear before Police: In the ongoing controversy over his most recent photoshoot for a foreign publication, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has been issued a notice by the Mumbai Police.
The police reportedly went to the actor's house to deliver the notice, however, the actor wasn't there. He will supposedly be required to appear before the police on August 22 to submit a statement.
The team will now visit his home again on August 16 and issue the summons for August 22, as it was informed to the police that he would return on that date.
According to an FIR, the actor was accused of posting images from his private library for Paper magazine on his Instagram account. The operation was carried out as a result of a police complaint lodged by the leader of an NGO with a local presence.
The FIR has been filed against the actor under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, including sections 292 (sale of obscene books, etc.), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), and 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), as well as provisions of the Information Technology Act.
A lawyer also requested a lawsuit be brought against Ranveer on the accusation of intending to offend women's modesty, in addition to a Mumbai-based non-governmental organisation (NGO).
